Cambridge Audio TOPAZ AM5 Stereo Amplifier

Cambridge Audio TOPAZ AM5 (Black)

Stereo Amplifier

In stock
£119
The Cambridge Topaz AM5 takes the excellent AM1 as its basis and adds desirable extras to make an even more impressive amp.

'Sound first' philosophy

Like the AM1, the Topaz AM5 has been designed from the ground-up to offer the best sound quality for the money without any unnecessary frills. So no fancy equalizers or flashing lights but you do get high quality, low-noise tone controls. These have been designed to work in a subtle way so as not to unduly affect the balance of the mid-range, yet still tweak the upper and lower frequencies.

Detailed, true-to-life sound
With 25W per channel, the Topaz AM5 is 25% more powerful than the AM1, which makes it the ideal choice for using in larger rooms or with power hungry speakers. As with other Topaz products, the sound is true-to-life, detailed and has far more depth than similarly priced low-fi. If you don't believe us, come in and hear the difference for yourself!

Front-mounted MP3 socket
The AM5 is also far better built than the class average. A full metal casing with brushed aluminium front panel gives the AM5 the look of an amp costing two or three times as much. There's also a front-mounted 3.5mm socket that's perfect for connecting your MP3 player or iPod.

For genuine hi-fi at a bargain price, the Topaz AM5 demands your attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Budget Amp I bought this amp to replace an old Sony: a friend owns the AM10, so I knew CA had great audio quality. Bass control is good but the treble lacks a bit, nothing enough to put you off though! Sturdy construct. All in all, an excellent price for a mid-low-end amp that delivers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value. Considering the price, the build quality is great, nice solid front. The sound quality is surprisingly excellent. The amp can easily drive the Cambridge Audio Sx80 floor speakers with ease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value for money I needed a replacement for my trusty old A&R Cambidge A60 which has finally started to give trouble. This looks almost too good to be true, but I must say it puts out a lovely, clean sound. On paper it might look a little underpowered, but it does pack a wallop when required. I have partnered it with a well used pair of B&W bookshelf speakers and it drives them with no trouble. One small caveat is that there is a hum, noticeable on quiet passages. Overall very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Amolifier - rich sound! Bought this to replace a Rotel amp I bought from Richer Sounds in 1990! Great have provision to connect my iPod classic but it's for the vinyl and CDs that this was bought. Sound is excellent. Fills a room and is excellent value for money.
